Carroll has not started a game for West Ham in a year

Carroll has not started a game for the Londoners in exactly a year when he struck twice against West Bromwich Albion in a 2-1 win.

For Nasri, the chance to play for a Premier League club again seemed to have gone after he was banned for a doping ban.

While on loan at Sevilla from Manchester City, the former France international was receiving an intravenous drip treatment at Los Angeles which earned him an 18-month backdated ban.

While there were naturally some sceptical fans, the majority of supporters seemed to be excited by the inclusion of the former Arsenal star.
